Vaccines for all
Reaching every community, everywhere with life-saving vaccines.
Vaccines are amongst the greatest advances of modern medicine. They have slashed child mortality rates in half, saving millions of lives.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been a devastating reminder of the chaos caused by diseases we cannot prevent. Vaccines have offered us a way to tackle the pandemic. But we’re not settling for a return to normal. Normal was never good enough for millions of children around the world. No child should die from preventable diseases and we won't stop until that's a reality.
Vaccines are an extraordinary human success story.
Thanks to the incredible work of scientists, health workers, parents and so many others, more children have had access to lifesaving vaccines.
They deserve our gratitude.
And we say thank you at a crucial time. Despite the successes, an alarming 23 million children missed out on immunizations in 2020.
Join UNICEF's #LongLifeForAll campaign and show your support to help make sure that every child has access to the vaccines they need to keep them healthy.
Vaccine information for families
Vaccine information for policymakers and partners
We have an historic opportunity to lay the groundwork to eradicate preventable diseases. Even before the pandemic millions of babies globally did not receive any vaccines. Service disruptions, economic chaos and overburdened health systems have threatened a devastating rise in preventable child deaths. The cost of school closures on students’ learning, health and well-being has been devastating. We have the tools to control many of the diseases that remain a real threat for children – help us redouble efforts to reach everyone with life-saving vaccines.
UNICEF has helped reach more than 760 million children with life-saving vaccines - preventing more than 13 million deaths - in the last 20 years.
On the frontlines: Delivering vaccines to reach every community
Every year UNICEF reaches almost half of the world’s children with life-saving vaccines. Now with COVID-19, UNICEF and partners are leading the largest vaccines procurement and supply operation in history.
